When good people help good people

The other day, I posted a blog about a family whose 12-year-old has battled cancer for 7 years and they have a host of other difficulties.

The response was tremendous from the people of SonRise Church as well as friends who read this blog.  As a result, a church member whose husband works with “Sam” send out this email:

“Several people have contacted us to let us know that they wanted to help “Sam and Jane”.  My husband said that he was going to talk to “Sam”today at work to coordinate the donations.  Well when he told “Sam” that our church had sent out an email and there were a lot or responses, “Sam” asked that we hold off on getting things together for them.  He told my husband that they were given a new dryer and stove, the truck has been worked on and someone is going to pay for their 12-year-old’s dental work, and their mortgage payments have been caught up.  He is thankful for all everyone is doing, but right now he is a little overwhelmed. We are also overwhelmed. in an awesome way.  We all have witnessed this Christmas miracle.   I know that several people have food, and items they want to donate, but at this time, we think it best to step back. In a few days we will talk to “Sam” again and then coordinate the donations.  We will keep everyone posted.   Our God is an awesome God and our Church family is wonderful. Thank you all.”

I am amazed at the power of a few people uniting to help someone in genuine need. Let us remember this as an example of how we can have a huge impact if we live generously, even if our “generous” isn’t very much.
